Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 6 or higher.

You did a very good job! You are slowing down every first phrase of every other bar I hope that makes sense smile.gif
Like 0:13 - 0:15
I would suggest practicing with a click and try to feel the groove! Set the metronome at a comfortable tempo when you can control every note you play! And try to play with the click!
It is a beginner lesson and you did a very good job! It's 9 from me! Keep it up! smile.gif

Hey mate, the quality of the recording is good, everything is clear but maybe you could raise the volume of the backing track a little smile.gif Alex is right, so I would only reinforce his words - practice this a little bit more and try to play the notes as equal as possible wink.gif

Sounds good to me. There may be the occasional timing fluctuations but this is quite hard to control at very low tempos and even pro guitarists are prone to that so...

If anything, I thought you occasionally slightly sped up the picking here and there but it was nothing major so I'm gonna throw you a 10 smile.gif
